    About Josh Uhmbehr:

    Josh majored in human nutritional sciences with a minor in biology. He also did extensive research on the effects of vitamin A on lung cancer. He then graduated from The University of Kansas School of Medicine and completed his family medicine residency at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
